I'm looking to combine column filtering and the totaling API. I've started by copying over the API example, but it's not working in my test environment. Can anyone see what I'm missing?

This is what I'm trying to copy.

Thanks

    both example and your code are missing div id="demo" tag that exists right before the table tag.

    I added it here http://live.datatables.net/wipidaha/2/edit

    Bindrid2,

    thank you, I saw the demo tag but understand exactly where it should have been declared.

    The button isn't working in the test environment. Do you think there's missing code in addition to what you found?

    Thanks

    @Lonnie.Hull Not sure what you think is not working, its working for me.

    The test environment is "sandboxed" and won't show alert messages. If you click on the upward facing arrow in the upper right of the output tab the web page will display fully in the browser and the alerts will show.

    The HTML for the demo is not showing the "demo" div prior to the table.

    <div id="demo"></div>
    

    Hence Lonnie's code is missing it, hence the js "prepend" doesn't work.
